An 18-year-old man has been arrested after posting photos and video to social media of him egging the inside of a Queanbeyan restaurant.

The man, from Bonython in Canberra’s south, will face court on charges of malicious damage and trespassing.

His accomplice filmed the incident and the man posted the images onto social media along with making a statement about his actions.

Queanbeyan Police investigated the incident and visited the man’s home in Canberra early on Friday morning, August 26.

He was issued with court attendance notices for the incident in Queanbeyan, and will appear in Queanbeyan Local Court in early October.
